  • The work is devoted to the registration and the study of the properties of cylindrical shock waves generated in the fast discharge (dI/dt ∼ 10{sup 12} A/s) inside the ceramic tube (Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}) filled by argon at pressures of 100 and 300 Pa. The shock wave appears at the inner wall of the insulator and moves to the discharge axis with a velocity of about (3−4) × 10{sup 6} cm/s with subsequent cumulation. The plasma behind the front is heated enough to produce radiation in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) region, which makes it possible to study its structure bymore » means of a pinhole camera with a microchannel plate detector. The time resolution of the registration system was 10 ns. The analysis of VUV spectra of the plasma shows that the electron temperature behind the shock wave front is about several eV; after the moment of cumulation, its temperature increases to 20–30 eV.« less
  • The fluid elastic stability of closely spaced fuel rod arrays in Westinghouse Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) fuel assemblies has become a subject of extensive analytical and experimental research. As part of W planned research efforts, a series of full scale hydraulic tests were performed on a variety of fuel assemblies. As a consequence of testing various fuel assemblies, a variety of fuel rod array configurations was used to determine the onset of rod instability excited by a full length fluid jet. During the experimentation, mechanical and hydraulic parameters were varied. At the same time, rod vibration, jet velocity, and pressuremore » drops were closely monitored. The resulting test data was compiled and fit using Connors' equation. Subsequently, design/analysis capability was enhanced by developing a fuel rod stability criteria.« less
  • This paper reports the theoretical assessment of cracking which may occur when a severe cycle comprising alternate upshocks and downshocks is applied to an axisymmetric feature with an internal, partial penetration weld and crevice. The experimental observations of cracking are reported separately. A good agreement was noted even though extensive cycle plasticity occurred at the location of cracking. It is concluded that the LEFM solution has correlated with the experiment mainly because of the axisymmetric geometry which allows a large hydrostatic stress to exist at the internal weld crevice end. Thus the stress at the crevice can approach the singularmore » solution required for LEFM correlations without contributing to yielding.« less
